Clinical outcomes and functional recovery after temporomandibular joint replacement: a six-month follow-up study

Abstract : Temporomandibular joint replacement (TMJR) is recognized to solve pain and functional limitations when other less invasive strategies failed. TMJR consists in condyle osteotomy (leading to the section of the lateral pterygoid muscle) followed by the fixation of the fossa and the mandibular components. The surgery leads to immediate pain relief and a progressive increase of the mouth opening, assessed by the gap between the upper and lower incisal teeth. Other parameters were rarely considered such as the trajectories of mandibular landmarks (Wojczynska et al. 2019). Our study combines the assessment of the quality of life (QoL) outcomes with quantitative functional measurements – electromyography (EMG) of the masticatory muscles and 3 D mandibular motions – in order to evaluate the mid-term effects of TMJR.
